Anti-logging protesters have clashed with police in the Upper Florentine Valley in Tasmania’s south.
Up to 200 protestors tried to march onto Forestry Tasmania land this morning and more than a dozen were arrested after forcing their way through a police line.
One protestor stopped forest workers by chaining himself to machinery, while four people remain in tree sits at the site of a protest camp that was broken up early this week.
The march was in response to the police breaking up a protest camp on Monday to allow Forestry Tasmania to build a road through the area.
